ExportMetadata

ExportMetadata

Exports all Data Validation Option metadata to a DVML file. You can export all objects in a folder, or you can export individual objects by their external ID. You can run this command on Windows.
The
ExportMetadata
command uses the following syntax:
DVOCmd ExportMetadata file_name [--confdir conf_dir] [--username User name] [--password Password] [--ePassword Password Environment Variable] [--namespace Namespace][--folderNames folderA,folderB] [--externalIDs TP1,TP2,TP3] [--skipInvalidObjects]
The following table describes
ExportMetadata
options and arguments:
Option
Argument
Description
-
file_name
The file to which you want to export metadata.
--confdir
conf_dir
The user configuration directory. Specify the configuration directory if you have multiple Data Validation Option repositories on a client machine. If you have one Data Validation Option repository on a client machine and have not changed the configuration directory, you do not need to specify this option.
Because Windows directories often contain spaces, you must enclose the file path in quotes.
--username
User name
Informatica domain user name for the domain to which you configured Informatica authentication.
Required if you configure Informatica Authentication.
--password
Password
Password for the Informatica user name.
Required if you configure Informatica Authentication.
If you set the password option, then do not set the ePassword option.
--ePassword
Password Environment Variable
Encrypted form of the password of the Informatica user name.
Use the DVOCmd EncryptPassword command to encrypt the password. Set an environment variable to the encrypted password and use the variable in the ePassword option. The command replaces the environment variable with the encrypted password and then decrypts the password.
If you set the ePassword option, and then do not set the password option. If the command contains both the password and ePassword options, then the Data Validation Option uses the ePassword and ignores the password.
--namespace
Namespace
Namespace of the LDAP domain.
Required if you configure Informatica Authentication with LDAP domain.
--folderNames
FolderA
Exports one or more folders. Use commas to separate multiple folder names.
If the folder name or external ID contains commas, spaces, or special characters, you will need to use different syntax.
--externalIDs
tp1
Exports individual objects. Use commas to separate multiple external IDs.
If the folder name or external ID contains commas, spaces, or special characters, you will need to use different syntax.
--skipInvalidObjects
-
Skips all invalid objects when you export a folder.
